Toyota’s Japanese and European dealers welcome the refreshed Auris hatch this week, known in Australia by the familiar Corolla name.

For 2015, the Corolla picks up a number of key styling updates, revealed in March, but buyers in Japan will also now have the option of a new turbocharged model.

Known in Japan as the 120T, the new variant is powered by Toyota’s 8NR-FTS 1.2 litre direct-injected and turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 85kW and 185Nm, the latter available between 1500 and 4000rpm.

As with most small turbocharged engines, the Corolla’s 1.2 mill is focused on fuel economy.

Toyota claims fuel consumption figures of 4.6 l/100km with its ‘Super CVT-i’ auto transmission, while the six-speed manual lists a 4.7 l/100km fuel rating.

CO2 emissions are listed at 109g/km with the manual and 106g/km with the auto.

Hybrid, diesel and 1.5 litre petrol versions of the Auris/Corolla will again be offered in overseas markets, but Toyota's Australian arm will offer only an improved version of the 103kW 1.8 litre mill currently available.
